In-patient Welcome Guide
You may have been in hospital recently, or this may be your
first time staying overnight. We understand that any visit to
hospital brings with it some element of anxiety. This Guide is part
of the way in which we can help overcome some of the anxieties you
may have. The Guide is full of useful information that will help
make your stay with us that little bit better. You will receive
your Guide when you arrive on the ward. If for any reason you do
not receive it please ask a member of the ward staff for a copy.
